A checklist of polychaete species recorded from Paraná State (Southern Brazil, 25°10’– 25°58’ S / 47°59’– 48°35’ W), including estuarine areas from Paranaguá and Guaratuba Bays and shallow continental shelf bottoms, is reported. Altogether 44 families, 164 genera, and 259 valid species are currently known from the area. The list, which provides a synthesis of the regional taxonomical work carried out until now, can serve as a baseline survey for future studies.
